Remember, you are Priceless

Drew Barrymore came out a few years ago on SZA’s Ctrl album, and it is a whole mood. There are lyrics in there that call out to me because sometimes we just feel a certain way and it is okay as long as we do not stay there.  

I get so lonely I forget what I'm worth. We get so lonely we pretend that it's worse. I'm so ashamed of myself, think I need therapy.

Sometimes we fall into that trap and allow ourselves to be treated as if we are worthless. We may find ourselves in situations that we would not normally be in. It happens. That is life. Remember that you are worth all the treasures in this world and definitely worth the effort to pull ourselves out of a less than desirable situation. Do not ever forget your worth because as long as you draw breath you are worthy of it and nothing is more important and precious than breath.

I love it when she sings “Collect your soul, get it right.” I think of this for myself. Our self-worth is a matter of our soul. It is a matter of what is most important to our essence. Snatch that thing all the way together and let’s get ourselves right. There is always an opportunity to turn it around. 

I always try to find empowerment in pain especially when dealing with art. Without the juxtaposition of pain and pleasure, how would we learn to rise up and heal from what hurt us? Even though the artist puts her pain on paper, she is still able to overcome it. That is the glory. That is the fight. That is the survival of living life.

Drew Berrymore by SZA Lyrics

Why is it so hard to accept the party is over?
You came with your new friend
And her mom jeans and her new Vans
And she's perfect and I hate it

Oh, so glad you made it
I'm so glad you could come back
Somebody get the tacos
Somebody spark a blunt
Let's start the Narcos off at episode one
Bring the gin
Got the juice
Bring the sin
Got that too
Won't you just shut up know you're my favorite
Am I

Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)
Is it warm enough for ya inside me, me, me, me
Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)
Warm enough outside, inside me, me, me, me

I get so lonely I forget what I'm worth
We get so lonely we pretend that it's worse
I'm so ashamed of myself, think I need therapy

I'm sorry I'm not more attractive
I'm sorry I'm not more ladylike
I'm sorry I don't shave my legs at night
I'm sorry I'm not your baby mama
I'm sorry you got karma comin' to you
Collect your soul, get it right

Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)
Is it warm enough for ya inside me, me, me, me
Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)
Warm enough outside, inside me, me, me, me

Sorry, I just need to see you
I'm sorry I'm so clingy I don't me to be a lot
Do you really wanna love me down like you say you do?
Give it to me like you say you do?
'Cause it's hard enough you got to treat me like this
Lonely enough to let you treat me like this
Do you really love me?
Or just wanna love me down, down, down?

Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)
Is it warm enough for ya inside me, me, me, me?
Warm enough for ya outside baby, yeah
(Tell me that it's warm enough here for ya)

Warm enough outside, inside me, me, me, me
Warm enough outside, inside
Warm enough outside, inside me, me, me, me, me, me, me
Oh-whoa, is it warm enough outside, inside?
